Introduction THESE responsive readings are an attempt to adapt for the

public worship of Christian congregations those noble passages of both Old and New Testaments which are suited to the purpose. In general all didactic scriptures have been avoided, and those chosen which, like the Psalms, present to God the united prayer and praise of the congregation, or, like the great chapters in Isaiah, represent the people as meditating upon and exalted by their common faith. The rendering is that of the American Standard Revised Version, with this exception : that wherever the name Jehovah appears, the general term Lord has been used. This is done in answer to the widespread and reasonable demand that our Christian services of devotion shall not be unnecessarily encumbered by outgrown Hebraisms.

And a great King above all gods.
In his hand are the deep places of the earth ;

The heights of the mountains are his also.
The sea is his and he made it; and his hands formed the dry land.

O come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before

the Lord our Maker: For he is our God,

And we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.

With him is plenteous redemption. And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
